Presidential debate live: Trump and Biden to face off for first time

The debate will have six 15-minute segments. It will run for 90 minutes, with no breaks for commercials. There will be no opening statements, and the first question will go to Trump.

Moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News said he’s hoping to let the debate flow. He isn’t expected to factcheck either candidate – it would be a mammoth, time-consuming task – and has said he will strive to be as “invisible as possible”.

Wallace was in charge of selecting the six topics, and they were announced by the Commission on Presidential Debates last week. They are:

  • The records of Trump and Biden.
  • The supreme court.
  • Covid-19.
  • The economy.
  • Race and violence in our cities.
  • The integrity of the election.
